"There are two sides to every story, and here is one of them. These essays make the case that special interests of all kinds have contributed to the well-known inefficiency of environmental regulation.

"Of the sacred cows left, none is more consistently protected by the major media than the notion that environmental policy is shaped by a struggle between white hats (environmental groups and regulatory agencies) and black hats (industry and private property). This book demolishes this myth and in the process does a service for sound environmental protection. Anyone interested in environmental policy should read this book."- Francis S. Blake Former General Counsel Environmental Protection Agency
